Sweet dreams for younger residents

Logo LBRUT Small

With children and extended families across the borough not being able to meet up during lock down, Richmond Council is launching a series of virtual bedtime stories – with the Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Councillor Nancy Baldwin and volunteers from Richmond Talking Newspaper (RTN) playing the starring role.

A different story will be read every evening at 6.30 on Richmond Council’s You Tube channel. Starting this evening (11 May 2020). Books being featured in the series include:

• Bedtime for Alfie by Sophie Ambrose
• Captain Green and the Plastics Scene by Evelyn Bookless
• Counting Sheep by Pippa Chorley
• The Lonely Giant by Sophie Ambrose
• The New LiBEARean by Alison Donald
• The Spacesuit by Alison Donald
• Odd Socks by Michelle Robinson

RTN provides weekly recorded local and community news for blind and partially sighted residents of the Borough.
